Pirelli Wins Malcolm Group Deal
The Malcolm Group has switched to a Pirelli and Vaculug tyre policy effective from 1 May 2010. According to the company, the decision was made after an intense product test and tender process which saw the leading truck tyre manufacturers’ pitching their best products for performance comparison. Pirelli fitment for new tyres and Vaculug for retreads were chosen, working with ATS Euromaster as service provider.
Graham Hutchison, Pirelli director of truck UK was obviously pleased with the result: “Tenders can be difficult situations and The Malcolm Group management team and engineers provided a tough and demanding audience, but Pirelli’s range of new ‘01’ products and Vaculug’s retreads proved to be the best.”
Dave Alsop, Vaculug sales director added: “This is a firm stamp of approval for the Vaculug/Pirelli partnership and we are looking forward to a strong, professional relationship where we can only add to the Malcolm’s success story.”
Steve Sugden, Malcolm Group Fleet Engineer agreed: “Change is sometimes difficult and Pirelli had some tough competition to improve upon, but Product performance shone through and we’re looking forward to realising the benefits on our bottom line and in our service levels to our other partners, our customers.”
